The weekend’s Orchard WPWL action sees Cardiff Met host Port Talbot with a chance to further extend their lead at the top of the table.
With Swansea City and Cardiff City both not in action this weekend, unbeaten Met can move anywhere between 11 and 14 points clear with a victory, depending on how fourth placed Abergavenny get on at Briton Ferry Llansawel.
Kerry Harris’ side have now won nine of their opening ten games of the season, with their only draw coming in the reverse fixture against the Blues back in September, Jessica Curran’s late goal giving Talbot a 1-1 draw.
Talbot are unbeaten in three games themselves. A 3-1 win against Llandudno last time out drew them level on points with Abergavenny, and they have a chance to go above both Swansea and Cardiff, should they break Met’s unbeaten streak.
Abergavenny can also go above those two sides should they beat bottom side Briton Ferry. Richie Jeramiah’s side haven’t played a lot of matches of late, having only played three times since the start of December, and were narrowly beaten 2-0 in their last outing by Swansea.
They beat Ferry 3-0 in their last meeting back in September though, and with second place up for grabs they will be hoping for a similar result this time out. Ferry are still without a win after ten games, but remain only two points behind Rhyl, who host Cyncoed at the Educate Group Stadium.
Both sides have struggled to find form so far this season, with Rhyl having only won one game out of nine and Cyncoed three. One of those Cyncoed victories came against Rhyl back in October, Caitlin Bevan’s double the only goals in a 2-0 win for the Mighty Oaks.
Fern Burrage’s side will be out to put their last result, an 8-0 defeat in the derby against Met, behind them, while the home side will be similarly hoping to forget their 7-0 defeat away at Swansea in the League Cup semi-final last week.
